Print, scan and copy easily from anywhere in the home with the Canon Pixma MG3250.
Allowing you the type of flexibility that will let you print and scan from and to your mobile devices, Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint app has the ability to give you access to your printer from anywhere in the home. Printing emails, photographs and web pages from your iPhone, iPad or iPad touch is made possible by this machine supporting Apple AirPrint.
As is the case with many devices in the Pixma range, the MG3250 is a machine that is both compact and stylish. A printer, scanner and copier, this Canon product is described as an ideal all-in-one for home users looking for “everyday functionality”.
When it comes to replacing your ink cartridges, the XL cartridges offered for the Canon Pixma MG3250 mean you can save up to 50 per cent per a page. This type of cost saving will be welcomed by those who look to print on a regular basis. The print quality offered by this machine is excellent and documents and photos can be produced at a fast A4 ISO ESAT speed of 9.2ipm mono and 5.0ipm colour.
As well as the savings that can be made on your ink cartridges (when shopping online at Cartridge People), you can also save paper through using the printer’s auto-duplex function that lets you print double-sided. An energy saving feature can be found with Auto Power Off. This feature turns the printer off if it has not been used for a certain time whilst Auto Power On will turn the machine back on once you start printing again.
Fans of storing photographs on Facebook will enjoy the Print Your Days app that allows you to print images directly from Facebook. You can even create collages with up to five photos on any one page.
The Canon Pixma MG3250 is a device capable of printing, scanning and copying and has Wi-Fi functionality meaning you can print from anywhere in the home.
This is a stylish and compact printer which also benefits from being able to support smartphone printing. Auto duplexing also comes as standard with the MG3250 which has a small footprint so it won’t take up too much space in the home. With a print resolution of 4800 x 1200dpi, this Canon printer produces good quality prints in terms of both text and graphics. When it comes to print speed, the MG3250 operates at around 3.5ppm in colour and 6.5ppm in mono. Printing photographs could take up to a minute.
This could put those who like to print pictures off from buying this printer but as a printer to be used for printing colour photos on a ‘casual’ basis, the MG3250 should fit the bill.
Although its primary function is to print, there is no shortage of copying functions available with the option to choose between paper sizes and even resize originals.
The wireless functionality of the MG3250 is a plus point for a family environment where you may look to print from another room. Despite this, it is worth noting that there is no screen in order to set up Wi-Fi and so you will need to connect to a wireless network using a USB during set up.
One criticism that has been made when talking about the MG3250 is the running costs involved. Luckily for you, we are confident that our excellent value original and remanufactured cartridges will provide you with a good counter argument to these claims and allow you to continually produce high quality prints time and time again whether they be for a child’s homework or to print off a family photograph.
